My take on him is that his style was more artsy and a good fit for what they were doing in early 69, a little less so by 70 with the introduction of the workingman's blues material. By 71 I don't see how he would have fit in at all, he just doesn't/wouldn't mesh well with alot of the material they began to play.

that's it basically, he did very well on the psychadelic set pieces of 1969, once they veered off into the direction of acoustic guitars and gunpowder, he got left behind in the cloud of smoke...
